Yesterday was great! We had a lovely dinner out. I had two (small) glasses of sangria (probably 8 oz total), some chips, maybe 1/3c guacamole, and two veggie tacos with roasted sweet potatoes and kale. The combination was fantastic. That, plus close to 5 miles of walking, made for a really fun night. I’m not pretending that the walk “burned off” my dinner or anything like that… but going for a walk after a meal does so much to help digestion, blood sugar, and general well-being. I still can’t walk fast for exercise or run, but my knee is holding up quite well. So that was a plus.
Breakfast: strawberry Chobani, a hard-boiled egg, and coffee with single creamer (240 cal)
Snack: 3 clementines (100 cal)
Lunch: Huge salad with arugula, balsamic, 1/2c chickpeas, 1/3c edamame, 2 tbsp slivered almonds, and 1 oz gorgonzola (400 cal)
Afternoon snacks: 1/2 c frozen yogurt with 1 c strawberries (It’s so hot here today – this will be perfect) + nu go free bar (340 cal)
Dinner: 1.5 c cooked black beans, 200g sweet potato topped with cinnamon, roasted zucchini and squash (420 cal)
Workout: 30 minutes on the bike after the toddler goes to sleep, ~2 miles of walking
Post-workout: 2 hard-boiled eggs (140 cal)
I am totally on the summer frozen yogurt train. I need the extra calcium for my bone fracture. 😉 1/2 c frozen yogurt topped with a ton of berries makes for a really delicious dessert. We have a nice frozen yogurt shop about a mile and a half from our house, so it’s quite pleasant to load up the toddler in the stroller in the evenings, walk over, get some yogurt, and then walk home.
Happy Wednesday, all!
